Police Community Services Funding
The Western Australia Police Force have reviewed and realigned all funding arrangements for community services administered and managed by the WA Police Force in line with the Agency Commissioning Strategy.
The Police Community Funding Framework has reshaped the way the WA Police Force does business with all community service providers and aligns with WA's Implementation Plan for Closing the Gap and with the Aboriginal Empowerment Strategy. These strategies set the WA Government’s high-level strategic approach for working with Aboriginal people towards empowerment and better outcomes across the State and will ensure the outcomes of the services and programs support targets in the National ‘Closing the Gap’ Agreement.
Our focus in on providing better services to Western Australians that:
- meet the needs of the people that use them, at the right time and in the right place;
- are sustainable and delivered by organisations that have the right staff and systems in place;
- are based on evidence of what works and robust quality standards; and
- are culturally safe and tailored to local community needs.
Expression of Interest
The Western Australia Police Force are seeking expressions of interest (EOI) submissions from service providers who deliver programs and services that address local police and community identified needs including, but not limited to:
- community safety
- youth engagement
- youth diversion
- family Safety (violence)
- homelessness/rough sleeping
- volume crime
- alcohol and other drugs.
EOI's will be accepted until Wednesday 11 October 2023.
The EOIs are a part of a broader commissioning process.
Due to the volume of submissions and nature of the Police Community Services Funding Framework the WA Police Force will only contact organisations when a service or program is required.
All EOIs will be retained for a period of twelve (12) months, organisations may be contacted at any point during this time, as service needs arise.
If an organisation has already submitted an EOI they need not re-submit for the same services within a 12 month period.
